Well, I’m finally finished. Here is the ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Dress Pattern I’ve been promising! This is a FREE UNgraded pattern. Therefore, keep in mind that it is untested, except by me. If you find an error in the instructions or pattern please let me know and I will happily correct it.
Lily’s measurements are: waist: 20"; shoulder circumference: 27"; height: 50". She is 7 years old but wears a 6. If your child is larger or small adjust waist, shoulders and length accordingly.
The pattern comes with instructions. To assemble pattern follow instructions in PDF. Just be sure that the test square measures 4″×4″ before you start to cut your material.
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST ADD SEAM ALLOWANCES TO PATTERN
Note: This bodice was fitted for my daughter who has a very small waist for her age. You might want to take it out an inch or two depending on your child. If you do take it out on the bodice add an equal amount to the side seams for the front and back (ie: 2": add 1/2" to each front and back side seam), also remember to add the same amount to the waistband and double that measurement for the skirt (that goes for the lining as well).
This dress has a ballet neckline and shoulder sleeves. Deep back and fitted bodice. The skirt is knee length, fully lined and flared with an optional tulle insert.
